Tuesday Caps Clips

James Guillory-US PRESSWIRE - Presswire

Your savory breakfast links:

Alex Ovechkin is prepared to spend a full season in the KHL, possibly reunited with Alexander Semin, and then presumably disappointing a whole new fan base come playoff time. [Puck Daddy, Alex Ovetjkin, WaPo, SB Nation DC]

● Speaking of players dancin' the lockout scramble, Michal Neuvirth will be rejoining his former club, HC Sparta Praha. [WaPo]

● For more who's-going-where, a couple of useful links (that we all hope become irrelevant really quickly). [WashTimes, Elite Prospects]

● ... All of which brings us to the latest CBA (non-)news and opinion... [Puck Daddy, Sporting News, WashTimes, ESPN, On Frozen Pond (nice Tomas Vokoun quote), Peerless, Caps Outsider]

● ... as players keep on keepin' on. [WaPo, CSNW]

● Call it a hunch, but I don't see the Caps using an amnesty clause to get out of a contract they signed two months ago. [Backhand Shelf]

● The player referenced in that last bullet, Mike Green, gets the Peerless preview treatment. [Peerless]

● Gotta love that John Carlson contract, eh? [NHL Numbers]

George McPhee: "I used to think coaching was overrated. Now I think it is underrated. Coaches are vital to your success." Caps fans may wonder when that shift in thinking took place, and while the article's not Caps-specific at all, it's a worthwhile read. [USCHO]

● An interview with the new 2C's 1W. [Hockey Shopped]

● Checking in with the Caps' two fashion icons. [DC Sports Bog]

● How the Russians went from robots to divas. Sweet? [Globe and Mail]

● Monumental Sports & Entertainment introduces Monumental Productions, "to produce creative video content that will be consumed by ... fans and customers across many platforms: in-arena, online and on TV." That sound you heard was CSN Washington gulping. [Ted's Take, SBJ]

● When you've famously celebrated a goal by pretending your stick is on fire, your birthday cake needs to be a little... more. [SB Nation DC]

● Finally, happy 46th birthday to Tom Chorske.
